Huck memorializes Ted Kennedy:
He would be a very fortunate man if his heroic last few months were what future generations remember him most for.
Ed Kilgore at TNR is mad because of what Huck alleges in the runup to that sentence, namely that President Obama wants sick old people like Ted Kennedy to go home and die so the government won’t have to pay for their operations.
All right, but about my favorite sentence. Huck is gifted with words and has a good churchgoer’s streak of cattiness, so I suspect that the remark quoted above was designed to bounce off the one Ted Kennedy memory that his audience holds dear above all others.
